The Bauchi ANPP Chieftain also described Governor Bala Mohammed as a workaholic who within a period of seven to his assumption of office being executing many roads development projects that are today in their various stages of completion, saying Bala’s giant strides in education, health and agriculture are unprecedented in the history of Bauchi state.
